Chapter preview: All I wanted to do was talk to her… it was like as soon as I spoke that my impulses took over… I didn't think about all the things wrong in my life. Instead I only thought about her… about us… about right now.
I knew that I was falling into dangerous territory, but for once I just wanted to be selfish… I wanted to continue to know her, and not back out now.
And that was what I was going to do.
In that moment she looked back at me and noticed that I was staring shamelessly at her, and a beautiful smile slowly formed across her face- one that made me smile even wider. I gently squeezed her hand, which I was still holding on to, and then leant towards her, breathing in her sweet scent.
"Oh and Bella…?" I whispered softly to her, "Happy birthday by the way."
